The mission of Rezonate, the Ross Barnett Reservoir Initiative, is to build public awareness about the environmental impact of activities within the Ross Barnett Reservoir watershed, educate stakeholders about the absolute importance of protecting and restoring the water quality of the Reservoir, and involve local stakeholders in restoration and protection activities within the watershed.
Born of the aspirations, dreams and desires of visionaries past, the Ross Barnett Reservoir is an interwoven community of residential, commercial, wildlife and ecological systems that coexist to create a source of life, as well as a source of lifestyle.
It is a dichotomy of rural wilderness and the most upscale, modern developments. A community in the traditional sense, the Reservoir is also a community in the larger sense … one where all of Mississippi may take part in camping, boating, hiking, bicycling and a destination for experiential learning, as well as a source for economic development and social interaction.
The common thread to all this activity and community is the unsurpassed water quality management practices performed within the Reservoir’s watershed. It is an area vehemently protected by a highly motivated, enlightened citizenry that has a passion for the sustainability of this precious resource.
A source of pride and a wellspring of enjoyment, the Reservoir is a place where all who appreciate its many benefits take personal responsibility in sustaining its unique characteristics for generations to come.
